3. MAXIMUS VICTORINUS.
We possess three short tracts --
all apparently the work of the same author and usually ascribed in MSS. to a Maximus Victorinus; but whether we ought to consider him the same with the rhetorician who flourished under Constantius or as an independent personage it is impossible to decide.
These tracts were first printed in the collection of ancient grammarians published by Adamus Petri, 8vo. Bas. 1527, where the two former are assigned to Marius Victorinus Afer
and the third to Maximus Victorinus ;
they will be found also in the Grammaticae Latinae Auctores Antiqui
of Putschius, 4to. Hannov. 1605, pp. 1938-1974; and under a greatly improved form in the Corpus Grammaticorum Latinorum Veterum
of Lindemann, vol. 1.4to. Lips. 1831, pp. 267-304.
